Conestoga Tile is very fortunate to work with many fantastic suppliers, so in addition to regularly telling you about all of the great products our suppliers create; we also want to tell you a little bit about the companies behind the products. Today we would like to begin with Questech.
Questech is one of our premiere suppliers of decorative elements and natural stone. Just 25 years ago, Questech was a vision in the mind of founder Roger Questel. As he sculpted carvings for clients like Ralph Lauren and Orson Welles, he envisions creating a series of sculpted bowls that, after being cast into bronze, would adorn the finest galleries of New York City. However, he ran into the age-old problem of the expense and weight of bronze. That led him to create something entirely new – Questech Metal, an innovative metal composite that is about 20% of the weight of traditional metal for a fraction of the cost.
A short time later, Questech was producing high quality signs and other items from companies ranging from Harley Davidson to Tiffany, and Roger saw another opportunity in creating decorative items for the home. Roger connected with Barry Culkin, who took a look at Questech and saw that Questech had the potential to change the tile industry. Barry was a former president of Boston Whaler and head of U.S. operations for Reebok, and his business background combined with Roger’s creativity, has allowed Questech to become a leading producer in the decorative tile market.
Conestoga Tile represents Questech’s Dorset collection, which includes a variety of products, such as cast stone tiles, natural stone tiles, and a number of decorative accessories for the home.
We’re proud to have the creativity and innovation found in Questech products among our suppliers here at Conestoga Tile. For more information about Questech or its Dorset collection, please contact us at 888-415-5689.
